DPW bids on $2.5 million signage project | Guam News
The Department of Public Works is ask for offers for a $2.5 million traffic signal system upgrade project.
The project includes upgrades to eight traffic signal systems around the island.
It will also include four typical four-intersection box-type cable span cable systems: Route 1/Route 6, Route 1/Route 4, Route 4/Route 15, and Route 4/Route 10.
The upgrades also include a mast-arm signal system at the Route 1/Aspinal Avenue intersection and a diagonal-type cable span cable system at the Route 1/5th Street intersection.
“The project also includes the replacement of traffic loop detectors at the Route 4/Chalan Canton Tutujan intersection and the Route 1/Route 14A intersection, and the installation of GPS clocks at various locations,” said Vincent. Arriola, Director of the Department of Public Works.
The project is expected to start in the second quarter of 2023, with a contract duration of 240 days. There will be limited disruption to traffic flow when the traffic systems are installed, according to Arriola.
“This is a safety upgrade and improvement project consistent with Governor (Lou) Leon Guerrero’s goal of having safer roads for Guam residents while achieving the goal to use improved technology for better traffic flow. The intersections included in this project are the upgrades that were long overdue and therefore it was a priority to release them for procurement,” said Arriola.
The project is funded by the Federal Highway Administration under the Federal-Aid Highway Program. This is the first of three project phases.
